I tried calling Sync support a few months back about the message date Issue and they basically said there was nothing that could be done about It.Thanks for your help. Brian

Hi Brisoup,

I have confirmed with a supervisor that our engineering team is aware of the text message issue. Unfortunately, there are currently no settings within your SYNC system which will resolve this. It has something to do with the format of the text information and how it is sent to the SYNC system. My best recommendation is to keep your software up-to-date (both on the phone and on SYNC. Check for SYNC updates at: SYNC Technology | SYNC Support | after logging in.

If your software is currently up-to-date, check out this link for some basic troubleshooting steps: Troubleshooting tips for SYNC and SYNC with MyFord | SYNC & SYNC with MyFord | Send me a PM with your VIN if the issue continues. I'll take a closer look.

I'm sure if I hammered out a few hours of iTunes organization, it would work perfectly. There is also a little tool called Sync my iTunes or something like that that can help out.
It sounds like you're already on the right track, Elite_Deforce. Sync My iTunes is a great tool to organize your music information. The tool is located at the bottom of this page: Keep in mind that you must be logged into your account first.

Anyways, I performed a reset, and removed the phone from the car. The dealership did it the first time to show me how to do it. So I did it myself, and it's flawless. Texts and phone calls are great in this car. The engine is better though.
